What will you be doing?

We guide our clients through a 3-step process: analysis, concept design and development. As an information designer, you will be involved in the entire process from the initial meeting with the client up to the final delivery. You will work on concepts for both the static and the interactive components of the infographics, interactive reports, and visual storytelling.

We are a small company with high growth ambitions. That means that we cannot offer you an easy job with a fixed task description. You will play a key role within the company, and be responsible for streamlining, optimizing, growing and managing the information design branch of the company. Be prepared do deal with clients in sales meetings, brainstorms and design presentations. No worries, we are here to help!

What can we offer you?

On top of the job diversity, we can offer you one hell of a ride, with lots of challenging opportunities for learning and growing. The ambition is to grow Baryon into a thriving data design agency in the next few years – and you can play a key role in this process!

Our values are:

  • Challenge: we like to tackle complex problems that go beyond the ordinary
  • Diversity: a wide variety of perspectives will always lead to the best results
  • Transparency: we communicate and visualize things as they are – no fluff

We like happy, spontaneous, ambitious people who are not afraid to speak their mind or to go out of their comfort zone. We will do everything we can to fight discrimination based on age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religion, or political preference.

We can offer you a full-time employment with competitive salary (€ 3500 to € 4000 gross monthly salary based on your experience and the value you can bring to the company), smartphone and laptop. Baryon is based in Gentbrugge, Belgium. A lot of the work can be done from home, but we also offer you a coworking spot where you should work with the rest of the team at least 2 to 3 days a week. No worries, we’ll take care of the public transport costs. We’re also happy to provide you with all the trainings, subscriptions or books you might need to expand your expertise.

One more thing...

Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Baryon we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
